Sour Cream Pastry

Ingredients:
1 ½ cup flour
½ tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
½ cup shortening
½ cup sour cream

Combine the dry ingredients and then cut in the shortening. Last add the sour cream and blend with a fork. Gather the dough into a ball and wrap. Chill for a few hours or overnight. Roll out and place in a 9 inch pie plate.

Tomato Pie Filling

Ingredients:
4 medium tomatoes peeled and cut into thick slices
½ tsp. salt
½ cup mayonnaise
3 green onions sliced
2 TBS. fresh basil chopped
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese [in two half cups]

Procedure:

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Lay the tomato slices on paper towel and salt them. Let them stand for 30 minutes or so to draw out the water. Mix the mayo, onions, fresh basil, and half of the cheese. Bake the empty crust for 12 minutes until lightly golden brown. Put ½ cup of the cheese into the pie shell then layer in the tomatoes. Spread the mayo mixture over the tomatoes. Bake for 35 minutes then allow to cool for 5 minutes before attempting to cut the pie.
